Noticeable volume increase after 3.40pm, stock moving down.
$ABK bankruptcy chatter
now the real question is whether we should be shorting it now and picking up the may/11 50 cent call, for 13 cents?
"Ambac Financial Corp ... may file for bankruptcy in Manhattan as early as this week"
* AMBAC HOLDING SEEKS TO RESTRUCTURE MORE THAN $1 BILLION IN DEBT
* AMBAC HOLDING SAID TO PLAN FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY THIS WEEK
That trade idea could work, but for me 13 cents is too expensive.
For how long do options still trade under same symbols?
